Are you dead set on getting one of the originals or do you just want to be able to run the cartridges?
If you just want to run the games, I would definitely buy an FC Twin. Review of FC Twin. You can find those in local game/comic shops a lot of the time. Call around and ask what they have in the way of 16-bit console emulators.

Link to Seller. There's also sellers listed on Amazon for it.
I saw a bunch of those FC twin things on ebay, was wondering what that was. Thanks for the link. I think I'd rather get an original SNES though, for nostalgia's sake (got my first one in '94), and also because I still have all of the wires and such in good condition, so all I need is a deck. I wish I knew of some local places that would have one, but it's probably going to be a lot harder to find now that half the city is out of power. I guess I could drive around blindly and make note of stores if they're not open, but if I don't find anything it'll be time to go on EBay.

Also, @Moller, VC doesn't have Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.
